This book covers artistic development in children, how to cultivate their interest in art, writing your art lesson plans, special needs children, and much more.

The issue of teaching art and specifically the methods used to stimulate student interest and the implications of art teaching methods have been in the researchers' scope for decades since the late 1950s. Particularly for the early childhood classroom, from pre-school through the primary grades, the basic questions most researchers tried to answer are how to attract students to art and how art is used to develop their learning skills.
